He has to be on his way to getting his own show.
Nolan is Emily’s Jiminy Cricket, down to the flipped-up collar. Funny-Emily lies like Pinocchio. ;)
Pan Am, all your shipping is boring me. That being said, Colette is my fav.
Also—why is EVERY show insisting on an audacious girl/girl kiss? I’m not talking about gay characters—just the “OMG” factor of a girl/girl kiss to get viewers. Shall I list all the shows on the bandwagon this January? *coughCheapPloycough* Girls who kiss other girls for guys’ attention aren’t doing it for gay rights or women’s rights. They’re doing it to get the attention of misogynistic men.
I directed 53 episodes of The X-Files and never had a nomination for an Emmy. We won 2 Golden Globes, we were never nominated for best drama Emmy. The people that run the TV industry truly think that this is just Sci-Fi nonsense.

30 Rock, Parks and Rec, The Office and Up All Night? Yes, please! Excited.
Nolan and Emily are partners in crime once more. I can sleep at night.
…that I didn’t watch The X-Files “How the Ghosts Stole Christmas” this holiday season. GASP!!
Dwight Schrute: ”It’s never the person you most suspect. It’s also never the person you least suspect, since anyone with half a brain would suspect them the most. Therefore, I know the killer to be Phyllis, A.K.A. Beatrix Bourbon—the person I most medium suspect.”
^ When people rant and rave in either extreme over a subject, I get annoyed. This is the only reason I use this quote. I think, many times, the “medium” approach is good. And I’m NOT talking about “being a lukewarm believer”, you Christians who may be reading.
Take, for example, “Merry Christmas”. ’Politically correct’ people say, and want everyone to say, “Happy Holidays” or, “Seasons Greetings”, as to not offend those who don’t celebrate Christmas.
But it’s the backlash against “Happy Holidays” that truly annoys me. So many Christians feel the need to get rant-y and preachy about the greeting. Their posts come often in November and December.
“Have a Merry CHRISTmas!” They shout.
That’s great-enjoy Christmas. Remember Jesus’ birth. I’m with you. However, I don’t think Jesus came to Earth as a baby so that we could yell at others in our Facebook posts. I don’t think He came to Earth so we could one-up others, talk down to them, belittle them and judge them.
The “Happy Holidays” movement is so like ten years ago. Let it go. No one cares if you say “Merry Christmas”. Say it if you want to. No one cares. Your whining about it is far more annoying than wishing a non-Christmas celebrator a MC.
I know plenty of Jewish people. My husband is Jewish and his family is Jewish. They don’t care if you wish them a Merry Christmas. Why? Because, at the very least, Christmas is an American holiday. Businesses and schools are closed, and ANYONE can have a merry day on a free day off!
I don’t think anyone is going to be drawn to Jesus with you quipping about the phrase “Merry Christmas” on your Facebook page. Say the greeting you wish to say, unapologetically, humbly, with love in your heart and joy about the “reason for the season”. Maybe somebody will ask you about the joy in your life. But they’ll only “hide” your annoying, ranting post about which holiday greeting is SO CORRECT.
So, referring back to the quote, about Dwight suspecting someone a “medium” amount, I think people should try to be more medium. Not lukewarm.
Condemning people for saying MC and making them be more generalized and say Happy Holidays? That’s too extreme.
Guess what else is too extreme? Lecturing them about NOT saying MC! It’s the same thing in reverse.
I like the “Medium” approach.
Second example. Tim Tebow. Good grief.
Tim is mocked for his faith. The end. He is. That’s called persecution, and it happens a lot to vocal Christians.
The people on Facebook who say, “If I have to read one more post about Tim Tebow, I’m going to barf”…they are bothered by the Christians who like Tim Tebow simply for being a Christian. So they are one extreme.
The other extreme is-not following football or Tim previously, and suddenly, just because he’s a vocal Christian, FILLING your Facebook page with Tim Tebow stalkage, like he’s a god or something. I’m NOT saying you can’t like him or respect him or post about him. I’m saying these lightswitch people who become obsessed with him, watching his games, talking about him non-stop and posting annoying, condescending “Christian” (ranting) posts about him.
I think, once again, that there is middle ground.
Tim Tebow is a man-a flawed sinner, like everyone else on Earth. He has made a bold stand for his faith and I admire him for it. But I see a lot of people following a mere football player. It’s a good opportunity to make sure we are following the football player’s Savior and Creator.
The best thing Christians can post about Tim Tebow are things like, “God, please use Tim Tebow for Your glory alone. Win or lose, please use his life to show your love, and draw people to faith in You.”
Not, “TEBOW TOUCHDOWN! PTL!” I mean, really. Fine line between hero-worship and God-worship.
Sometimes, I want to sprinkle “medium dust” all over Facebook.
I like when Christians stand up for their beliefs and causes, but yeesh, the preachy posts have really landed on my last nerve.
And now I’m “preaching”/lecturing, so I better get off the podium and make sure my heart is where it needs to be.
I won’t if you stop posting good stuff. :P
That awkward moment when you can’t reblog on tumblr, because your reblog will cite/quote too many f-bombs. Seriously, who decided the f word in your name and blog was the way to go? Take out a loan and buy some class.
